Getty Images

Apparently I jumped the gun in an earlier post, announcing that Getty Images was partnering to make free pictures available. Presumably, that could still happen, but the latest news is that Getty Images has been bought by Hellman & Freidman, a private equity firm--for $2.4 billion. Details at Unbeige, which seems to be part of Mediabistro.

Don't know where that leaves the partnership with PicScout and free pix deal--hopefully, still viable. Because, blog posts are nothing without pictures, but starving writers can't afford royalties for most of them! They won't sue me for using a logo, will they?
